Question about 1997 Chrysler Concorde
I had this happen on my concorde also and I was on the freeway. it turned off, lost steering and it kept doin it, I was trying to get off the freeway.anyways...I also thought that it was the fuel pump and was ready to replace it, glad I didn't though. Check your COIL SYSTEM first.that's all I did wit mine. well dat and I also replace the sparks plugs and spark plugs wire and it did the trick.MOST LIKELY IT IS YOUR COIL ASSEMBLE. good luck.

Check your fuses under the hood on the left side of engine compartment. If the control module, 30 Amp fuse is blown check the wiring on the right side at the rear of the engine near the area where the head and block meet. Unwrap the protective tape and look for burnt or melted wires. Mine was melted. The car died suddenly would not start, had to tow it home. I found that problem, cleaned it up without cutting the wires. Then I put on several coats of liquid electric tape, let it dry well, then I wrapped it with a special tape that is high heat and seals to itself. Then I covered it with plastic, flexible automotive conduit. You should probably disconnect you battery first.

First thing you need to do is get a fuel pressure gauge, and on your fuel rail, there is a fitting with a cap on it. Screw the cap off and hook up the fuel press. gauge. Turn the key on. That should tell you if it's a fuel problem. If it has fuel pressure, it's not the fuel pump. Next, check to see if the coils are firing. One way is to take a plug out, hook the wire to it, and have someone crank the engine and see if you see fire from the spark plug. Another thing you can check, but you have to have a noid light set. Unplug one of your injectors, hook the noid light into it, have someone crank the car, see if the light flashes. That will tell you if your crank position sensor is working. If no flashing light, put a crank position sensor in it. You can also, when you turn the key on, listen for the fuel pump hum. Hope this will help you. Phil
